These chocolate covered strawberries are amazing, but the eye-opening fact that people don’t realize is that they are incredibly easy to make. Stop buying those overpriced strawberries at the store! These strawberries will not only be less expensive, but taste more fresh and flavorful.
Wash and gently pat dry strawberries. Trim a small portion off each of the long stems. Lay strawberries on a tray lined with a paper towel to keep drying. Unwrap that sweet smelling chocolate and chop it into smaller pieces. Chop and keep semi-sweet and white chocolate separate. In a pot (or bottom of double boiler), add about 1-2 inches of water (3 cups) and bring to a boil (with High heat). Once boiling, reduce heat (Medium-Low heat) to a small simmer. Place a glass bowl (or top of the double boiler), on top and into the pot. Add semi-sweet chocolate and 2 tablespoons of shortening to the bowl. Stir continuously until melted and smooth (about 2 minutes). Turn off heat and remove bowl from pot. By holding onto the stem, roll strawberries one by one in the chocolate and set on a tray lined with wax paper to harden chocolate. Melt white chocolate and shortening together following the exact steps as for the semi-sweet chocolate. Drizzle melted white chocolate over each strawberry with a small spoon. Store strawberries in a cool location until you are ready to satisfy your sweet tooth on Valentine’s Day or any other day!
